A Christmas Story is a 1983 American classic Christmas comedy film based on the fictional anecdotes of author Jean Shepherd. The plot revolves around Ralphie Parker who wants only one thing for Christmas: “an official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot range model air rifle with a compass in the stock, and this thing which tells time”! Follow Ralphie and his family’s adventures as Christmas nears in this stage version of an American classic – which will be performed at Rockford’s new black box theatre! Seating is limited, so get your tickets when the box office opens on Monday, November 1st!
